I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

* Great Local Country Leadership Team
* Ability to impact a large audience
* Lately, more "coolness" factor in products and services

Cons

* Too much politics -- you grow because of who you impress, not your results
* Performance Review system is crap. It is aimed to demotivate all employees, including top performers
* Headcount limitations in small organizations, but no space to bring simplification to reduce workload and stress. Everything is "top priority"

Advice to Management

* Create clear career paths for all functions. It is insane that you expect employees to change job/country while impacting (reducing) salary...even with a promotion!
